I shoot both primes and zooms. In particular, my Zeiss primes spank my 24-70 at the same FLs.

However...

There are times where the zoom is the only way to go. A few weeks ago I was literally standing on a rock out in the middle of a stream. There was enough room for me and the tripod - no way I could work with a bag and swap lenses, but I wanted to shoot the scene at several different FLs - so I went for the zoom.

When I'm backpacking or traveling a good distance into the backcountry, I'd rather be versatile than limited to just a handful of FLs - again, zoom wins.

Most of the time I lean towards my primes, but there's no way I'd give up my zooms!
